Binary is great for computers, but really tough for humans to work with. We need something that's a bit easier for us. That's where encoding comes in. Vaidehi and Saron explore how encoding works and talk through some popular encoding schemes like ASCII, unicode, and base64. Check out the ASCII table here.
This episode of the Basecs podcast is based on Vaidehi's blog post, Hexes and Other Magical Numbers from her basecs blog series.
